Question

Prostate Cancer

Is there a cure for stage 4 prostate cancer?

A Answers (1)

  • The farther the cancer spreads from the prostate, the harder it is to successfully treat. Stage 4 prostate cancer, unless detected early enough, can therefore be more difficult to treat since it has spread beyond the prostate. Once prostate cancer spreads to distant organs, a condition called metastatic prostate cancer, a cure is no longer possible.
